I'm Still Here.. Sort Of

Monday, June 22, 2015
So it's been over three week's since I've shared anything on my little corner of the internet. I'm sorry that I've literally fallen off the face of the internet, but I know I shouldn't be sorry and it's my blog and yada yada but let me explain..

I've been writing this little blog for over two years and i've loved every single second of it. I've never been and never will be the best writer, but it's something that I feel i'm fairly decent at on a normal day. But sometimes I have days, weeks and even months of "low" periods in my life and I lose all motivation to write and lack any inspiration. This isn't an oh feel sorry for little me blog post, nor is it a request for a diagnosis on my life, but it's just a little reminder that, not only mine, but anyone's online outlet that you read might sometime's take a hit or lack of updates due to personal things that are going on in their life.

Over the past couple of months I've had really big highs and really low low's and you can see that through the lack of content on my blog and like I just said, i'm sorry for that. It makes me really sad to see that my last post was published on the first of June and not yesterday.

One of the reasons I don't write/create when i'm feeling under the weather is that I wouldn't want to see half arsed content on here that had no feeling or flow or sparkle to it. I like to think of my blog as a generally happy place, because I know I wouldn't want to come back to a blog each day that was monotone and had no personality to it.

I guess what i'm trying to say is bare with me. Love, Maisie will get back to normal eventually and there are actually lots of really exciting emails flying into my inbox as of late and I'd love it if ya'll would stick around for all the new adventures and trials and tribulations of my little corner of the internet.

As always, I love you all and keep smiling!

#GIBKITCHEN | My two little fur babies watching the passers by | I made a kimono out of a scarf and then took a 100% shameless selfie in the rock on the rock club's loos | Toby looking dapper | First day at the beach | N feeding a 2/3 day old little fluff ball | Getting crafty at #GibKitchen | Celebrating two lovely ladies birthdays | Receiving exciting things in the post! 

It feels like only yesterday that I was writing my April through instagram post, it's actually crazy how quickly this month has flown by.

You may notice the hashtag, #gibkitchen mentioned above and I just wanted to take a moment to let you know exactly what it is! #GIBKITCHEN was created by three very lovely and very talented friends of mine, Chris, Stefano and Pat. The aim of kitchen is to curate a living, breathing work space for young artists in Gibraltar, who face the problem of lack of studio space to facilitate the exploration of their work.* 

Not only has it been a work space for many talented people over the last month, but it's hosted numerous events, and those that I have attended have all been super duper amazing! I watched short film screenings from Lizanne Figueras and Aimie Desoisa, saw Ermelinda Duarte throw clay, attended the SVA style workshop where my lovely friend Paul showed off some of his everly perfect designs, adored my lovely friend Carolina's #ThisIsNotArt presentation/gallery drank a lot of vodka and wine and sat in at Stefano's Graffiti presentation! I'm in the process of writing up a whole post about Kitchen but until then, why not check out their website right here.

Oh and if you're interested in attending the grand opening/closing of Kitchen is this coming Friday, so make sure you follow their Facebook page for updates on that!

Apart from that, this month I also fed new born kittens, rode a horse again for the first time in years, went to the beach and got incredibly sun burnt, carved patterns into clay, celebrated Kathy and Devi's birthday's with pre-drinks before a pretty mental night out, took way too many selfie's and received lots of exciting post!  

So what have you been up to this month? Do you use Instagram? You can find my account at @maisieejo if you want to keep up to date with all my Instagram posts! May kicked arse on my little corner of the planet, let's hope that June is just as fab!
